For many reasons, we need a place for civil discussion on matters that have great impact on our lives and tend to lead to embarrassingly poor arguments and discussions in social media (especially by older generations). Since most of these issues hit ethical, social, political and even epistemic philosophy, and this is a great environment for students to practice both logical argumentation and finding legitimate resources, Offensive Fridays can play a very practical role in students’ introduction to Ethics.
For these Offensive Friday discussions, you will have a formal environment such that you could practice both civil discourse and logical argumentation. You’ll be asked to first come up with both a reliable and unreliable resource on the topic for 5 points, followed by a small description of why you find each reliable or unreliable.
